On staying motivated...

I posted a list of 10 tips for staying motivated to commute by bike over on CBB today. The resulting discussion has quite a few good suggestions, too. Check it out.

Meanwhile, I'm really feeling the burn from that ride on the Townie yesterday. That bike makes you use different muscles and the extra effort wasn't kind to my knees, either. Funny that I write an article on staying motivated, then skimp out and take the bus (hey, it's tip #2 on my list!)

I got my Moo MiniCards in today. My company won't issue me business cards, so I set off to make my own. I was sick of being caught without contact information cards to hand out at things like IT Security World and DefCon, as well as here around town when meeting people with similar interests (such as Music, Information Security and Bicycling).

Moo lets you create your own printed media using photos you upload or that you have hosted online. In my case, I used my Flickr photos and I had a mixed assortment of cards made using cropped versions of Quivira Viaduct Ramp, Hacking and Soundboard. Hit me up in person if you want one. Most of you already know how to get ahold of me, though... These MiniCards are just right. Small, fun and unique. I'm very happy with the finish, the price and how fast the cards got here from London.

Moo also sent me a pair of discount coupons (only good for new, first-time customers, so I can't use them) - One is for 20% off an order of 100 MiniCards, the other is for 15% off your entire first order (however large that might be). Feel free to claim dibs and I'll send the discount code to you via email.

That's all for today. I really need to try to get to bed early tonight. I hope my fellow KC folks are enjoying the weather as much as I am. This stint won't likely last much longer.

Yeah, I bailed on riding today too. Late night with the baby and then trouble getting back to sleep...
